Young Students Learning About Marxist, ‘Ant-Bourgeoisie’ Ideologies Seen As Threat By Governments, But Should This Be A Big Deal?
The government is tasked to protect the welfare of the country, and so we can expect that it will do everything in its power to make sure that the people are able to live in peace. Whoever poses threat to take the peace away from the country will be dealt with force, and that means using military power to quash down any attempts to endanger the welfare of the citizens.
Although, the government can also take action in shutting down attempts to bring it down. While a destabilization plot agains the government is not necessarily a direct assault to the people’s welfare, a country running without a government can cause unwanted repercussions such as anarchy and lawlessness, thus putting everyone’s lives at stake.
This is the reason why governments all over the world are bent on eradicating groups who have sworn to take down a country’s symbol of power. For one, the communist party, whose beliefs heavily rely on Karl Marx’s political and economic ideologies, is considered by the governments as among the top threats. The thing is that young folks, especially those students who have just entered college, are being drawn into a more leftist or communist ideologies. Thus, some governments are proposing to submit young students into questioning and clearance to prevent the communist party from recruiting fresh members.
Focusing On The Youth’s Recruitment Into The Left Will Not Address The Root Problem
While the government is making steps to protect itself from destabilization, keeping an eye on the youth sector to prevent the growth of communist and other anti-government movements will not solve any problems that the country is actually facing today. In fact, if the government really wants to stop the spread of leftist ideologies, those people in power should figure out the reason why many people, particularly, the younger generation, are easily drawn into the communist movement.
This is because of the lack of assistance from the government, which the people have already been feeling. Instead of supporting the poor and the needy, the government’s policies have always favored the upperclass citizens who own big corporations. Whereas those who are in need of quality healthcare and decent jobs are left in the dark. For one, there are those who question the government’s decision to fund army modernization by purchasing high-tech land mine sweeper vehicles, but there are no plans being made to improve the way of living of the masses. Thus, we can expect that these people would resort to calling for radical change in the government, something that the communist movement is fighting for.
The increasing price of commodities in the market is also a reason why different groups are losing faith in the government. Good thing that the Amazon Great Indian Sale can offer great deals to which the public can take advantage of.
